As someone who manages visas for agencies, if you have the experience, an O. H1B are constantly under change and scrutiny with USCIS.... well all visas really. With a strong O, you’d be in much better shape. This administration is making changes regularly so find a good immigration attorney or rely heavily on the agency’s if they have one. PM if needed.

O1 if you’re eligible

O1 for sure. I had an H1B and my husband (creative director) had an O1. When we went through immigration he got high fives and jokes from agents. I got scowls and interrogation.

Are you married? Are you single? Do you qualify for an O? It’s not that simple.

Marital status doesn’t matter tbh. If you qualify for an O do that or else your stuck with an H

I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.

Building off a thread from a few days ago on how long you waited to consultant an RE. If I am under 35 and have not been trying for 12 months, do I need to spin it to my doctor like I have? It seems bad to not give my doc the real info but I also don’t want to be turned away and I think I’ve heard you have to tell them it’s been 12 mo to get insurance to cover it. Any insight?
